CCL2511 6″ Glass Onion Wall Lantern Caged


This CCL2511 6” Glass Onion Wall Lantern Caged is pictured here in Antique Brass with clear glass. It accommodates a medium base bulb and is lit from the top. The Antique Brass is not lacquered so will darken and weather to a beautiful natural patina!

IMPORTANT NOTE: All Onion Lanterns come apart with thumb screws for ease in cleaning and replacement of light bulb.

The origins of the Onion lanterns date back to the whaling ships and fishing vessels of years gone by. The name “onion lantern” came about because of the shape of the glass.

The onion glass is a hand-blown globe, and casts a lot of light all around! Very popular in seaside areas…especially on Cape Cod! Folks in different parts of the country are now using them both inside and outside on many home styles because of the amount of light they show.

The onion lights are commonly used outdoors near one’s front door, side doors, decks, porch areas, as well as inside in bedrooms, hallways, bathrooms, etc.

Mounting Area: 5.5” High x 4.5” Wide.
Mounting Height: 12” from center of the J-Box to top of the lantern.

Dear Craig and Debbie,

My lanterns arrived — and are just beautiful! Both day and night.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your kindness about my mis-order. Transposing one digit certainly messed things up! You were so understanding about it. And thank you, too, Craig, for taking me under your expert wing and recommending one size up. Makes all the difference!

I shall always remember your kindness when I look at my lanterns.

My thanks, again,

- M.G., NY
